Hello, Sade and Sarah!
I'm very excited to have you both along for Saturday, January 24th. 
This will be great!

Below are each of the models we will be working with, their stats, inspirational looks for each of them and also a short description of my game plan for each.
Some of these ladies will be bringing their own wardrobe, thus there will be some flexibility within each of these themes.

Warning - this is going to be a bit long! But we'll have all our info in one spot :)


Makeup

Okay, so my target client is aged 28 to 55 years young. You'll notice many of the models have the appearance of an established 28 to 35 year young woman. It is important to emphasize class, while keeping these ladies looking their age.

There are several models who are younger. I'd like for their makeup to look mature. Not too mature, but more mature. They will be appealing to the 25-28 year range, the occasional prom/homecoming client, quinceanera and pageant ladies.  

Here are the examples for beauty and glamour makeup that I would like achieved.

(Please read the captions below each image)

It's important that eyebrows are not too thin!! You shouldn't have to "grow" eyebrows on most of these ladies. Also, natural colors that compliment the skin are always nice if you don't want to go too dark. (I want you to go dark enough on these ladies that you can tell they are wearing distinctly glamour makeup, but I don't want them to be so dark the depth of the crease is lost and it looks like they have raccoon eyes.)

This is gorgeous, just the right amount of sheen. (See what not to do below on Kim Kardashian's photo)

I do NOT want the crazy white and sliver highlights that are going on on Kim's eyes right now. Often, that lends itself the opposite end of classy and unless you are Kim, you can't really pull it off.

This might be a really great look for Wendy. Either way, I love that it's just glamorous enough.

Hair

Basically, I'd like big loose curls that are flowy and sleek, i.e. they are not fuzzy and frayed.

Look 1 Set :
I'd like to use the green wall and the light blue paper backdrop. 
I'd start with the light blue backdrop. (Sarah, I will need a little bit of fan action on her hair) 

Look 2 Set :
Wendy will wear one of the three dresses below. The green is my favorite. I'd like to semi-replicate the photograph of Katherine Hepburn in front of the green wall. So, I hope it fits.

These are the poses I'd like to experiment/create with Wendy.

Sarah, if you will help me keep track of the poses and occasionally redirect me to the screen, that would be great. As we will be compressing the time, your assistance will be very helpful here :)

Also, Sarah, I will have you helping me use a reflector. We can go over this Friday night or Saturday morning, whichever ends up working out.

Sarah, for this set, I'll need you to help me light all the candles as quickly as possible. We'll need to get Michelle into place, posed and then light everything. This is the most intricate se. So, we'll need to have this prepared as early as possible. 
It will be very important to make sure we monitor the flames. We'll also have to blow these out in a timely manner.
